Toyota Resumes Normal Production Levels in North America
At Elk Grove Toyota we're having a hard time believing that it is already six months ago that we were first hearing word of possible delays in Toyota's production due to the March 11th earthquake and tsunami. The devastation from this combination of horrible events lead many dealerships to receiving grim news about the future of the Japanese automaker's production for the remainder of the year. But, if there is one thing we know, it is the resilience of Toyota, and they haven't let us down in their effort to return to full production as quickly as possible. More specifically, we're pleased to announce that Toyota is back to full production in North America a full three months sooner than expected!
No one can mistake, of course, the biggest reason for Toyota's return to full production in North America: Toyota's return to full Japanese production. As Toyota's parts suppliers recovered, the Japanese automaker was able to return plants here in North America to their pre-disaster operating levels, producing models like the Toyota Camry, Toyota RAV4, and Toyota Tacoma with ease. These, along with the nine other models that are produced here in the United States actually account for 70 percent of Toyota's U.S. sales.
It goes without saying, however, that the Toyota will have some catching up to do in terms of inventory. Many dealerships across the country are feeling the effect of the short inventory supply, and while we here at 9640 West Stockton Blvd. Elk Grove, CA 95757 aren't exactly hurting, we'll gladly welcome the new abundance of new Toyota models onto our lot.
